Tree And Leaf contains two works by Tolkien, his essay 'On Fairy Stories' and his story 'Leaf by Niggle':

"Though one is an essay and the other a story they are related: by the symbols of Tree and Leaf, and by both touching in different ways on what is called in the essay 'sub-creation'. Also they were written in the same period when The Lord of the Rings was beginning to unroll itself and to unfold prospects of labour and exploration in yet unknown country as daunting to me as to the hobbits." (from Tolkien's preface).
